The Cincinnati Reds have suspended play-by-play broadcaster Thom Brennaman from working the team’s games after he uttered a homophobic slur on the air Wednesday, apparently unaware that the broadcast had returned from a commercial break.
Brennaman could be heard saying on the Fox Sports Ohio broadcast, “One of the f*g capitals of the world”—it was unclear what city he was referring to—moments after the feed returned from a commercial before the top of the seventh inning in the first game of a doubleheader at Kansas City.
Brennaman was taken off the broadcast in the fifth inning of the second game, with alternate play-by-play man Jim Day relieving him.
He was talking about London, England. They have the highest rate of cigarette use in the world.
“Devastated” and “Horrific” are kinda over the top, don’t ya think?
However, dude who WROTE n-word regarding Nuggets game is a complete moron.
